Broken DreamBroken Dream
Notes: Broken Dream is deep and complex. She awakens your imagination. She binds coffee and chocolate aromas, with the silky unctuousness of oats to crest thick, velvety delirium. She will draw you towards a land of flavor, reverie and color.

Very nice appearance, brown to black colour, medium brownish head. Smell of coffee. Taste is smooth, coffeish, but to sweet for me, reminds me of sweeter baltic porters. Couple of seconds after the sip not so sweet anymore, but nothing too exciting is happening. Not bad, but bit dissapointing. Guess it would be good to someone who likes Young's Double Chocolate Stout.

Pours an opaque black with half finger of brown/mocha head with reddish highlights at edge of snifter.
Aroma strongly coffee - coffee grounds, dark chocolate, slightly roasty.
Tastes of sweetened coffee, chocolate, bit of char - coffee bitterness keeps trying to peek in but malty sweetness pushes back - until the swallow when a bitter sweetness takes over.
Remarkably full mouthfeel at 6.5% with roasty creaminess on decent but not huge carbonation - exits with lingering bitter sweetness. Really good.
